I had a olt in 8/98 secondarily to hepp. C infection. The t-plant was done
at johns hopkins and the complications included rejection, cmv and
reinfection. I tried to take peg/ribaviron last year but was too sick to
continue. My last biopsy showed minimal inflamation consistent with hep c.
Also, no aggressive behavior of the hep c. My meds are tacrolimus 3.5 mg
twice a day. I am concerned with my kidney function at this time due to an
increasing creatinine, now 1.5, and 24 hr. creat. at 65%. No protein. I
wonder if changing to sirolimus would be beneficial and should I wait for
a less toxic regimen for the hep c.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
PS the hep c was from an exposure to a patient 17 years ago. Type 1b.
